Grills Preserve
198 Bowling Lane, Bradford

The Westerly Land Trust owns and manages this expansive preserve of over 540 acres with over 2.5 miles of frontage along the Pawcatuck River. Approximately 6 miles of trails pass through wetlands, a lagoon, forests, and a historic cemetery, as well as over several footbridges and up “Big Hill,” which has a lovely scenic view of the area. The paths are fairly well marked; just keep an eye out for trail markers and consult the map often.

Length: 3.4 miles; 6.1 miles if you extend on the orange trail
Difficulty: challenging for kids
Dogs: are welcome, so long as they are leashed and you clean up after them
Note: fluorescent orange requirements apply for all users during the hunting season (learn more)
